    Greetings! I had printed the first instructions and was downstairs looking in stash when the guests started arriving for the pot luck yesterday. Didn't they know that I had other things on my mind. But it went wonderful - lots of comfort food for our cooler weather here.

    I raided the stash, and like many of you, lots of the fabric isn't big enough. BUT, I found a number of black/cream/gray and then F will be a darker red. Will get a photo as soon as choose an E ( I have 3 that are calling me right now).

    Have apples on the tree to pick, so the Cream Cheese Apple Crisp Bars sound wonderful. Will make them and give take them to the church quilting this week. Oh a cup of warm apple cider sounds wonderful also. Well, off to kitchen to "raid" the refrigerator.

    Okay..I've gone through my stash looking for my meager collection of Christmas fabrics. I've been wanting to make a Christmas quilt, but couldn't decide on a pattern. I'm hoping this one will do. I've selected some Christmas and some solids that are the right colors for the season. Here's my lineup, A, B, C, D on the top, E & F on the bottom.

    ok I went through my small stash and I do not have anything large enough. I do have this peach and turquois but is it to big of a print.??????? I will have to wait until NOV to have the $$$$ to go and buy material for this. But then I will see everyone else's choices and I might borrow their ideas. LOL. Let me know about this material.

    tabeelady, ver pretty

    urgodsch - yes, I'm afraid it might be too large a print - it looks pretty spread out

    As hint to others out there wondering about scale - if you are asking me if something is too big of a print, please put a ruler on it before you take a picture. Thanks.

    nygal - I think you will have some good contrast here.
    If these were my fabrics I would use the 1st on the left and the white on the right for E and F

    As to the rest, in order as shown from left B A C D. Your white background print is pretty big, but the pattern is dense, so I think it will work OK if you have it with the one to the left of it.

    I LOVE purple and green. lol, dunno why.

    I'm going with more --- err Civil War colors -- which is the only thing I can think of at the moment. I finally got a nice stash built up after one of our local stores got in a ton of it from an estate sale. She totally unloaded on me for ten bucks. I love that woman. LOL

    Anyway, here is my picks: Name:  myst 002.jpg

    I wanted to use E for A, but didn't have enough of it. I hope there is enough for E. My camera on my phone is kinda crappy so they look more washed out than they really are.

    I think I am going to try to catch this train. Since we are vacationing, I will have to sacrifice and buy some fabric. Has anyone gone to the Fabric Outlet in Burlington, N.C? We went past it the other day and will do so again at the end of the week. Is it worth a stop and look see?

    These are the fabrics I could come up with from my stash. I stuck a ruler in the pic. to show scale. I had to purchase the pink check. I'm hoping my D and E have enough contrast. One is a white/natural cloverleaf print, the other a white on natural dot print. Also, my D is 1 1/2yds but all fat quarters. Will there be any long strips needed from D?

    I sure hope these fabrics will work...I choose them for my granddaughter's graduation quilt about 3-4 years ago...she will graduate in 2 1/2 years...I still haven't gotten it made! So, I really do hope these will work because if I can use it for this mystery, I might actually get it done! I have 2+ yards of each color & figured I could piece the leftovers together for the back. So, Judy, what do you think?
